Happy Monday guys! Today’s recipe is Hearty Taco Soup – so simple to make, delicious and heart-warming – just perfect for this kind of weather we’ve got at the moment.
It was actually snowing here yesterday and you can’t imagine how excited we all were. It’s been a good few years since the last time it snowed properly so that was quite a festive day we had. 😀 Well, the snow managed to stay for a few hours only but still better than nothing. And today we’re back to normal – it’s been raining all day, the lights in the house are on since morning (sometimes I wonder whether it’s afternoon or evening). If only it could snow at Christmas and New Year’s Eve! 🙂 Let’s get back to the recipe now..
I used beef and pork mince, corn, cheese, sour cream, tomato sauce and some spices. I’d definitely have used some beans too but I didn’t have any at the house. So if you could use any, I’d say go for some pinto beans. The taco soup was cooked in my favorite cast iron casserole. Did I guys tell you about it? I’m pretty sure I did, but honestly, I simply love it. 😆 I served it with tortilla chips, sour cream, shredded cheese and some hot jalapeno peppers. I actually had lots of tortilla chips with it as I dipped them in the soup. It was soo yummy! Make sure to serve it hot and if you opt in for the spicy stuff you’ll definitely warm up if not sweating. 🙈
